COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle. Also available in keg for export only. The very occasional cask version is only available in the UK and has a separate listing.
Goldings hops and Golden Promise malt.
At 8.5% ABV, Golden Pride guarantees a superb range of flavours, that is sure to satisfy even the most discerning of palates. Our brewers describe Golden Pride thus: ’ deep amber in appearance, Golden Pride is full bodied, of moderate bitterness, moderately hopped and rich in malt. Full flavoured, and reminiscent of sweet orange oil, toasted grains, and bread. Rich malty aromas lead to a similarly styled palate, with an intense finish. Sweet and bitter flavours are expressed in good balance in this weighty brew.’ Or as the late Michael Jackson, beer writer and connoisseur, put it: ’the Cognac of beers’.

From Carrefour. In english pint glass. Watching Breaking Bad 1x03. It smells nice, but although it doesnt taste bad, I dont completly like its taste, which is on the sweet side.

edsspoon (838) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle - amber with a foamy light brown head. Aroma of sherry, chocolate and roast malt. Taste of chocolatey malt, a little toasty, some dark fruits, sherry and fruit cake. A little alcohol works its way in but its not really unwelcomed. Medium body, low carbonation, nice and warming. Really nice beer for winter.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2008
Beautiful dark amber (almost reddish) with an off wihte head. Sweet aroma of peach, caramel and melon. The alcohol is quit aggresive and warming in a vineous way and there are a lot of malty woody notes, nuts and toffee. The bitterness keeps it from being too much, but nevertheless you should be a couple of guys sharing it.

mutz (814) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2012
Van de tap in de klep, ABT bier van de maand. Helder roodbruin bier. Ruikt wat zurig en moutig. Smaakt idem. Medium body. De 8,5 procent alcohol valt niet op. Niet zo mijn smaak.

mattphilips (801) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 1, 2011
British Store, Budapest. Sötétebb barnásvörös, fény felé tartva tükrös és csillogó szín jellemzi, habja pedig szivacsos szerkezetű, bézs színű és viszonylag hamar semmivé foszlik. Illata parfümös, aszalt szilvás, mazsolás és karamellás. Ízében ugyanezek vehetők ki, de lecsengésében a komló enyhe keserűsége mellett a fekete étcsokoládé keserűsége is megjelenik, utóízében is hosszan érezhető az aszalt gyümölcsök és egy enyhén csípős alkoholos íz társaságában. Bizsergető, igazán komoly sör, olajos, nehézkes testtel és keserédes, duplabakokra emlékeztető ízekkel.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 25, 2008
Tasted 24/08/2008, 500ml bottle from Regionals (in front of Lars and the Real Girl). Pours a cherry-hued rose gold with an off-white airy head. Big aroma of toffee, caramel and dark stewed fruit. Floral esters abound, a pleasant alcohol note lingers in the bacground and the spicy herbal hop aroma is lovely. In the mouth those aromas continue, with this being a very aromatic beer. It’s all wrapped in a luscious malt sweetness and oily ’heirloom orange’ hop flavour that reminds me of old school Old 95 - hints of liquorice and cough medicine too (in the most pleasant way). Alcohol is warming and, with the late hop bite, begs another sip. This beer is really growing on me and the movie was excellent too.

thb (797) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 8, 2012
Pours a bubbly clear bronze with nice lingering head buildup. Aromas of caramel, candied fruits (especially orange). Taste is big, fruity, and spicy. Balanced between hefty bitterness and sweetness throughout. Real peppery character comes through in the finish. Alcohol is hidden in the background turning up the volume. Lovely.
